“Implementing the Children’s Act and giving the Commissioner for Children the power of the ombudsman are two electoral promises that Opposition Leader Alfred Sant made yesterday during the presentation of the party’s proposed policies for the family and social policy.” – TMI 12.02.08
Come again? Power of the what? You mean the power to write reports that will be collectively ignored by the whole of Parliament? You mean the frustrating kind of job where your recommendations are shot down on the basis of political convenience?
The Ombudsman – another cosmetic brought to you by MLPN productions … coming soon the Commissioner for Children … for those days when your children are feeling unprotected and powerless… reports, reports and reports.
And since when is implementing a law an electoral promise? I thought that came automatically with the job.
This too is why the political system needs to be changed.
